Iron Poppies.

Low Moor Local History Group, part of the South Bradford Local History Alliance, are launching their new book “Iron Poppies” this weekend.

The book includes research on each of the 109 men whose names appear on the war memorials in the Low Moor area of Bradford.  Its authors are Barbara Reardon and Lucy Ives whose meticulous research brings alive many forgotten stories of bravery and loss.
It is an A4 book of 160 pages in a clear, larger than average font. There is a section on each man detailing his family and background, with photographs of many of the men and their graves. 

There is a section detailing where graves and memorial inscriptions can be found together with photographs of the war memorials of Low Moor and many of the cemeteries in Belgium and France.

Cost of the book is £7 but £10 posted to a UK address.

We are sorry to hear that John Nicoll has died.  We are still engaged in converting his collection of negatives into higher resolution images and will add them to the Low Moor Local History Group website in due course.

John will long be remembered for his contribution in collecting together photographs and memorabilia for Low Moor and especially the Storr Hill and Carr Lane area.

He will be sadly missed.
